So I think that is about it regarding Generally Event admin for the mo!

What am I going to be taking?   Grin

Well last year I got the Dwarf Army deal and I have played stunties a fair bit in the past but with the aim of this event being to try out as many races and combinations I decided to go Evil and field an Abyssal Dwarf Army!!

The main reason being I expected there to be a few Dwarf armies in attendance (at least more than the Abyssal kind) but also I fancied doing something a little different (not very different granted!).

I got all the pieces 2 weeks ago when I was last down at Mantic HQ and have been busy assembling and basing everything.  Currently everything is undercoated with 30 Decimators plus Lord and Iron Caster base coated.  My plan is to have each unit stuck to it's own movement tray with a little gap at the back for a stat guide and wound marker.

Some of you may have seen the pic I posted on the Mantic Fanatics Facebook page – 60 Decimators in 2 days almost made my eyes bleed but I got it all done.

And the guys walking around Mantic HQ have been chuckling at my Greater Obsidian Golem - no idea if it will ever see Combat but it sure looks mean!!

So onto the list…  well not having played the Abyssal Dwarfs I decided to go for an all round list but with an under lying theme of “IT’S GOTTA GO BOOOOOM!!!”

1750pts – Abyssal Dwarfs – Tim King

Iron Caster
Army Standard Bearer

Greater Obsidian Golem
Troop of Lesser Obsidian Golems

2 x Regiments of Immortal Guard inc. Standard & Musician

1 x Horde of Decimators inc. Standard & Musician
3 x Troops of Decimators

4 x Angkor Heavy Mortars

So all that comes to 1715pts which leaves me just enough to buy some Magical Artifacts! 

The Magical Artifacts are a new addition to the rules allowing the players to add items to units and characters to allow a little customization. My first Magical artifact was a no brainer really – Boots of Levitation on the Decimator Horde!  Basically this item allows the unit to advance and fire as if it was halted meaning my Reload! Thunder pipes are now move and fire!! BOOM BOOM!   Grin

My second one was really the best of what I could afford and I gave my Iron Caster the Talisman of Inspiration so that he now had the inspiring rule.  Probably not all that useful as he will be away with the artillery but you never know!

So pretty happy with the balance of the list, a bit of everything and hopefully will let me provide some feedback to Alessio on the Evil midgets!

So what is everyone else taking…?
